Following the disappointing performance of Til the Band Comes In, Scott Walker returned to middle-of-the-road pop with The Moviegoer. The record did boast some nice arrangements by Johnny Franz, but the music was seldom noteworthy.
Any Day Now (Scott Walker album). Any Day Now is the eighth studio album by the American solo artist Scott Walker. It was released in May 1973 but failed to chart. The Me I Never Knew" was released as the album's sole single backed with the opening track of The Moviegoer; "This Way Mary". The album was also the final Walker studio album from Philips Records and he later signed with CBS Records (now Columbia).
The Moviegoer is Binx Bolling, a young New Orleans stockbroker who surveys the world with the detached gaze of a Bourbon Street dandy even as he yearns for a spiritual redemption he cannot bring himself to believe in.
